To be honest, I didn't like the Let It Grow. Good sound quality tho. Hey, thank you for the link and rec.

1967 recs:
Viola Lee was especially sizzlin' at the O'Keefe from 1967-08-04

The opening zingers pull me right in, and the mid-section jam is just right, mellow and strange at the same time.
Over 20 minutes.

I like the VLB from 1967-03-18 a lot too.

Have you tried the 1967-06-18 Monterey Pop VLB?
Fantastic version. Also, it's available on film/video download on youtube, though the archive.org version (google it) is longer and sounds better than the youtube truncated outtake.
The outtake footage of the Dead playing VLB at Monterey Pop shows them giving it all they've got... on the reprise after the jam, Jerry holds up his right hand and jumps up, twice for good measure.

Also, have you seen PETULIA, the 1967 movie? (Release date 1968) - great footage of the Grateful Dead playing Viola Lee Blues. Big Brother rocks out Roadblock at the Fairmount Hotel, too.

There's the September 3rd 1967 version too, (the legendary Rio Nido VLB jam ends abruptly on LMA, but a more complete version has been added as a bonus on their remastered debut album which is also included with the Golden Roads box set).
The tune, an old jug band stomper, was the Dead's all-out show stopper during their '66 through '69 shows, and especially evokes their '67 tangle with the establishment if you will.

Cool reading your exchanges, guys...gone for a few days, and really enjoyed this one about how shows are selected and your interactions over dollars, 78 and such...

Great stuff in an understated kind of way.

There you go--love the 3/18 & 5/5 (you know why), and the rest. Consider Oct & Nov two of the better months of that year.
